The snowboarding big air event has been included in the Winter Olympics for the first time in history, and it did not fail to impress.

Parrot, 23, was in position to knock Toutant from the top of the podium with his final run, but he flubbed his jump.

Canada's Sebastien Toutant won the gold medal in snowboard big air on Saturday morning, as numerous favourites struggled to land their tricks. Mack used his third jump to try to capitalize on Toutant's fall, but he was unable to stick his landing, nabbing the silver medal instead.

American Kyle Mack won the silver medal and Billy Morgan of Great Britain took the bronze. Canadians won 14 gold medals in Vancouver in 2010.

American Jamie Anderson won silver in the women's big air event on Thursday, with Anna Gasser of Austria taking gold.

That competition took place amid stiff winds, and the competitors said afterward that they were not able to perform their toughest runs and their best tricks.

The Canadian kicked things off in the three-jump final with an 84.75 on his first run.

Toutant then stepped things up on his second attempt - landing a stunning 1620-degree spin cleanly to clock up an 89.50 for a combined score of 174.25.

The 25-year-old Toutant collected his first Olympic medal with the victory after finishing 11th in the snowboarding slopestyle event. "You know, you get bummed, but after a couple days you get excited to go ride".

Parrot was first in his Olympic qualifying heat earlier in the week with 92.50 points while McMorris placed third in his heat despite a massive 95.75-point run.
